Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

My playstation 3 froze with a green fuzzy screen. now i cant even get to the menu screen it just stays blank. it turns on will eject disks and i have no yellow or red flashing light. my tv doesnt even acknowledge there is a HDMI cable attached and i have tried the five second reset so the settings return to factory. i have also tried the scart cable for the old PS2 via AV this does not work either. however the only way i can then turn it off is by holding the power button until it shuts down. i am at a loss as its the original 60gb PS3 and id like to keep it if possible otherwise ill have to buy the slimline one!! thanks in advance if anyone can help

SOURCE: Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2

Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.

SOURCE: Playstation 3 won't power on?

Hello.
This is a hardware failure caused by heat. I have done TONS of research on this problem as I have a unit that is like this too. But I bought mine used. I hear that Sony will fix it or send you a replacement for FREE. I have been told by over 30 people that Sony did it for them. Just be honest and polite to the customer service people. Go to www.playstation.com choose your region, click on playstation 3, then Support (upper right corner) and there should be the contact information.
If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you!

Game disc is stuck in cosole


You will have to take a screwdriver to it, and open up the PS3, and remove the CD... once you do that make sure the console will stay on without the cd in the drive, do your update under systems menu then try ANOTHER game

Screen turns blank when i try ps3 games but ps2 games work fine


it sounds like your tv is being classified as insecure (some older models of hd tv as well as regular tvs do not always pass the "test" but will "pass it" on certin other occasions) it means that the ps3 may have determined that the tv can be used to rip the disk, if you are using hdmi try switching to s-video or composite. my ps3 did the same thing. I will try to remember how to fix it. untill then you can try my solution or try sombody else.
